    Positive psychology is the scientific study of the strengths that enable individuals and communities to thrive. The belief that people want to lead meaningful and fulfilling lives, to cultivate what is best within themselves, and to enhance their experiences of love, work, and play. A positive psychologist might help the person with depression by just talking to them and ask them questions about why they are feeling the way they are. They might give them ways to help to depression and to be more positive.
